Midterm Elections Hold Ultimate Verdict on Kavanaugh

The controversy over the sexaual assault allegations against incoming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh constituted a "disgraceful situation, brought about by people that are evil", President Donald Trump stated Monday as he celebrated his party's success in confirming the judge during a speech to law enforcement officials in Florida. Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations, which weren't tested in court.

"I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Trump said at the evening White House event.

That will be a challenge given the ferocity of the confirmation fight and Kavanaugh's testimony, in which he accused Democrats of arranging a "calculated and orchestrated political hit" to try to defeat his nomination. I noticed one of the the Democratic senators said if they got back control of the Senate this year they would just not do any judges the next two years. Justice Kavanaugh's two daughters, Liza and Margaret, and his parents attended the ceremony. Those millions of voters, the organizations who represent them, the president who promised them to overturn Roe, the forty-nine other Republican senators voting for Kavanaugh who oppose abortion rights-or Susan Collins? Brett M. Kavanaugh, who faced allegations of sexual assault from multiple women, was confirmed Saturday by a vote of 50 to 48.

Kavanaugh, now the country's 114th Supreme Court justice, could give conservatives a solid 5-4 ideological edge on the court and shape rulings for decades.

It drew the line under a bruising nomination process defined by harrowing testimony from a woman who says Kavanaugh tried to rape her when they were teenagers - and by his fiery rebuttal.

She acknowledged the anguish of the protesters who interrupted the historic Senate vote, telling reporters afterward that "I was closing my eyes and praying".

Only one USA supreme court justice has ever been impeached - Samuel Chase, in 1804, who was acquitted by the Senate.

In fact he has created more goals than any other player in Europe's five major leagues this season (5). We have a few injuries in midfield in particular so there was an opportunity there.

Later, in Orlando, he called Kavanaugh "a flawless person".

"I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said.

Mitch McConnell became Senate Majority Leader and soon used that position of power to block Obama's final Supreme Court pick, Merrick Garland, from even getting a hearing. The best student, the best scholar, the great intellect, incredible record over many years, and yet he's a young man.

Trump and his fellow Republicans are hoping the confirmation of the 53-year-old conservative jurist will energize their supporters in the midterm voting when political control of Congress is at stake.

McConnell spoke to reporters in Louisville on Monday before traveling to Washington to attend a White House ceremony honoring the newly sworn-in Kavanagh.

Kavanaugh was, in his words, "caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats". "The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela".
